I also have to believe Sykora was not brought back for reasons other than giving a younger player a chance like Lou said. Maybe Pete told Lou he has no more use for him after running out of gas last year, maybe he wanted more money, but something I have to believe is up.
I would expect when Sykora signs somewhere he'll get 3 or 4 times as much as he made last year. I can see the Isles, or another cap floor team offering him $2.5 million for a year.
Never really thought of that.
If a team offers you that much money, then you have to take it at this point of your career(Sykora's career, that is).
BUT I'd rather he be a Devil 'cause we saw that he ran out of gas during the course of the LONG Regular season....
In a 48-game season, he'd still have gas in the tank in the playoffs....
Oh well....I'm sure Lou knows what he's doing.
